Aladdin: Mena Massoud, Naomi Scott, Will Smith … The cast unveiled

Cinema 17 July, 2017

The cast of Aladdin was unveiled at the Disney D23 convention tonight. Another revelation: the first details concerning the plot of the live-action, which has not yet release date.

The revelations continue! The Disney D23 convention is held yesterday in California and the least we can say is that surprises and the excluded are not lacking! On the first day, we learned a lot about the upcoming Disney and Pixar animated films. We have learned, in particular, a lot of details about Toy Story 4, The Queen of Snows 2 or Rumor 2’s The Worlds. But Disney is also live-action, as this year the adaptation of La Belle And the Beast. Well, the studio does not stop there. Among the live-action scheduled on the Disney calendar are Aladdin. While no release date has been officially unveiled, today we learn a little more about the casting of the future film, and about the plot around which it will turn …

While Disney seemed to be struggling to find the actor who would interpret the hero of the film Aladdin, it seems that this problem is solved now! Indeed, the three main players are officially found! And it’s a rather tempting cast! In the role of Aladdin, we will find Mena Massoud, which we have already seen in some TV series. Naomi Scott, seen recently in Power Rangers, will slip into the skin of Jasmine. Finally, the Genie will be interpreted by Will Smith, as we knew for several days already! Last but not least, the Aladdin live-action should be based on the story of the book Les Mille et Une Nuits. It seems that in the end, Aladdin is running well!
